For those of you who love turquoise, especially when feathered with a light purple, this hat is for you!  Contrasting silks on the outside and lining of this hat work together in that one-of-a-kind feel of handmade luxurious felt.  Casual, yet distinguished.  SO soft and comfortable.

Description

The Gossamer hat is a Trish Raine-developed hat, handmade by fusing merino wool and chiffon silk in a process of wet felting (nuno felting).  This hat has silk on the outside of the hat, and is also fully lined inside with a different silk.  A thin layer of merino wool is felted between the two layers of silk, essentially “gluing” them together.  This means that it will be comfortable on your head, soft on your hair and will breathe, allowing air to flow right through.

This gossamer hat is a VERY thin felt, with silk on the outside and inside of the hat. It does not have much structure to it, so will easily fold up in a purse.  Each fold  is hand-sewn into place to keep the shape of the hat.  The original silk is used to make a binding at the bottom of the hat.  More silk, how luxurious!!!

This hat is wonderful for fall or spring, or if you have cooler summer nights. It is good in the winter, but not warm enough for very cold temperatures (but fits fabulously under a hood)! Perfect to be worn inside, and gentle on one’s scalp if experiencing hair loss.

This hat fits a head 21.5-22.5″.  If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
